While on holidays in Bintan two weeks back we spotted some Monitor Lizards during our nature walk around the hotel premise. I went on a guided nature tour with R as part of our weekend getaway package we had at Angsana Bintan Resort & Spa at Bintan Island, Indonesia. It has been a while since we last went for a walk around and it felt nice being out in nature.
I had to zoom in all the way to get a clear shot of this reptile. I didn’t dare go too close as I was afraid that it would scamper away and disappear into the pond if it detected our presence.
I wanted to get a better shot of this reptile but it hurried off before I could get closer.
As part of our walk we were taken to the Turtle hatchery they had at the resort and saw two different endangered species which they were trying to preserve. – The Green Turtle and the Hawksbill Turtle.
It was feeding time at the conservation lab and these hatchlings were enjoying their lunch.
It was really great to see that the hotel was so into preserving these endangered species and doing it’s part in their conservation.
